The Young European Movement UK (YEM UK) was formed in 1972 as a nonpartisan platform for under 35s to express their opinions on Europe. It is the UK branch of the Young European Federalists (JEF) and has a close relationship with the European Movement (EM) and other partners.

Activities[edit]

YEM UK has organized and been present at various events such as marches and protests. In March 2017, an anti-Brexit protest was held in Edinburgh[1][2], at which the chairman of the local branch said: "We want to raise the issue in British and Scottish people's lives that you have lies in the referendum campaign that people were not held accountable for and, whether you voted Remain or Leave, that is a real issue."[3]
